Maputo will host an Africa-Japan Business and Investment Forum on 24 August, the Ambassador of Japan in Mozambique, Toshio Ikeda, announced during a recent visit to CTA.
During an extended meeting with the CTA board, the Japanese ambassador exchanged ideas and experiences on the public-private dialogue and discussed planning for the Maputo forum.
Toshio Ikeda reiterated that cooperation with Japan, which has always been a strong partner of African economies, would continue, with the emphasis on creating jobs and transferring technology.
The aim of the forum is to strengthen ties between Japan and Africa, and Mozambique in particular, and to share good business practices and opportunities.
CTA deputy chairman Khabir Ibrahimo reported that Japan would continue to support the Mozambican private sector and establish mechanisms for the certification of fresh domestic produce for export to Japan. Ibrahimo said that Mozambique, and Africa in general, had much to offer Japan.
The Forum will bring together key players from African and Japanese business circles, with various African ministers also in attendance. The focus will be on agribusiness, finance, industry, energy and technology.Source: O País
